NFL expert picks for Week 16 from ESPN are starting to come in. Eight of the Week 16 ESPN expert picks have been submitted and quite a few of them are actually unanimous selections. The updated predictions were revealed Wednesday afternoon (Dec. 18) and some of them might actually surprise some fans. One of the surprises might be the analysts all predicting that the Baltimore Ravens are going to beat the New England Patriots on Sunday (Dec. 22). It's interesting to note that the fans voted for the Patriots winning it.

As noted, quite a few of the match-ups are unanimously selected. The teams that the analysts all agree will win are the Miami Dolphins, Cincinnati Bengals, Kansas City Chiefs, St. Louis Rams, Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions, Seattle Seahawks, San Diego Chargers, and San Francisco 49ers. That's 10 total games where the analysts have come to a complete agreement of what is going to take place over the weekend.

As for the most contended of the Week 16 NFL picks from the ESPN experts, that would be the Cleveland Browns at New York Jets game. Of the eight submissions, five are in favor of the Browns winning it and three are in favor of the Jets. It's worth noting that the two most successful voters picked the Browns this time around.

In the re-match of the New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers, seven of eight analysts went with the Panthers. Cam Newton at home was apparently too much to pass up, despite the Saints winning the first game between the two NFC South powerhouses this season. The winner of this game will also likely be the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoff standings at the end of the weekend.

In the other games, the analysts went with the Dallas Cowboys beating the Washington Redskins on the road, the Tennessee Titans beating the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road, and the Green Bay Packers winning at home over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Sunday night game prediction is that the Philadelphia Eagles will defeat the Chicago Bears.
